Greenpeace has very recently launched an online campaign where you sign up and every week a challenge is sent to your email. There is a total of seven challenges.


When you sign up, we'll send you 7 challenges over 7 weeks. Each challenge will be something anyone can do, and comes with detailed advice (plus a chance to share your own ideas). We'll also let you know about other ways you can help save our planet. Everyone's talking about climate change. You're doing something about it.
From what I have heard the final challenge will be something special. Eoin Dubsky from Greenpeace has this to say about challenge number seven:


Joining the campaign means you will get an email every week for seven weeks from Greenpeace (seven steps in total). Steps one, two and three are about changing your own lightbulbs and raising awareness about the campaign. Steps four, five and six are about demanding change from retailers, manufacturers and governments. Finally, step seven is a special surprise -- all I can say is "action!". :-)
Take action, join the challenge!
It takes a lot of energy to power and maintain servers for a web host. Therefore one of the most important things you as a blogger or webmaster can do is to choose a green web host.

With green web hosts I mean hosting companies that power their servers with renewable energy such as wind and solar power. Some of these green web hosts generate their own energy via renewable energy sources. Other web hosts offers carbon offsetting, discounts to non profits, letting their employees telecommute, etc.

Please check out our Green Web Host page for a more up-to-date list on Green Web Hosting Alternatives.

So which host should you choose then? Which is the best? I am sorry but I can’t tell you which host is the best because I haven’t tested all of them. You should always do a background check on any host you are interested in. See if they got some testimonials from customers. But any of these web hosts are better than your current one that isn’t doing anything at all to prevent global warming.
